If you're interested in including canonical modernist poets, you might consider Auden, Crane, and Cavafy.

"Smoke, Lilies, and Jade" by Richard Bruce Nugent, if you want to include an African American author.

Dear MSA list members,

I am thinking of putting together an undergraduate course on Queer Modernisms for next year and would love some input for possible texts/authors to put on the syllabus.  This course will be taught in a Comparative Literature department, so besides the usual suspects (Forster, Radclyffe Hall, H.D., Sackville-West, Djuna Barnes ...) it should include some French, German, Italian, or Slavic etc. texts and authors as well.  I would also like to include examples of visual culture (Claude Cahun?) and films (Nazimova's Salome).  Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
